Kareena and Arjun Kapoor starrer Ki & Ka hit the theatres on Friday. The film’s trailers and music have already created a lot of buzz over director R Balki’s bold approach to break all conventional rules of the society.
It is a movie where ‘traditional’ family roles have been interchanged between the husband and wife. Ki & Ka is the story of ‘Ki’a and ‘Ka’bir played by Kareena and Arjun Kapoor respectively.
Kareena plays the role of an independent and ambitious marketing manager in an advertising agency who doesn’t conform to the ‘housewife’ tag. She is married to Arjun Kapoor, for whom corporate competition is a headache and prefers to live the life of a ‘househusband’.
The trailers have been an immense hit with out-of-the-box visuals like Arjun wearing a mangalsutra on his wedding day instead of Kareena wearing it. Moreover, there is a massive buzz around the peppy song “high heels” – a superhit number of Yo Yo Honey Singh and Jaz Dhami’s album – which has been used in the movie in a new avatar.
Arjun Kapoor can be seen being the ‘wife’, dancing in red shoes with high heels. It surely is a different sight in a Bollywood movie which leaves the item songs to women protagonists.
This is a story that incorporates all emotions of love, ambition, drama, and jealousy but in a different style and with a bold approach.
